You can use this procedure to uninstall agents that you installed on virtual machines in your environment from an archive.

Prerequisites

Verify that the agent is stopped.

Procedure

  1. (Optional) : If you have a Windows operating system, run ep-agent.bat remove to remove the agent service.
  2. Select the uninstall option that is appropriate to your situation.
    • If you do not intend to reinstall the agent after you have uninstalled it, delete the agent directory.

      The default name of the directory is epops-agent-version.

    • If you are reinstalling the agent after you have uninstalled it, delete the /data directory.

  3. (Optional) : If you do not intend to reinstall the agent after you have uninstalled it, or you do not need to maintain data continuity, delete the epops-token platform token file.

    Depending on your operating system, the file to delete is one of the following, unless otherwise defined in the properties file.

    • Linux: /etc/epops/epops-token

    • Windows: %PROGRAMDATA%/VMware/EP Ops Agent/epops-token
